Maximize the Efficiency of Healthcare Storage Now and Tomorrow

By InterMetro Industries Corporation | March 12, 2024

Healthcare needs are constantly changing. As technology evolves and new medications and treatment protocols arise, supply and storage needs will change.

But what doesn’t change often enough? Storage spaces.

Healthcare facilities are busy environments with many moving parts, including people, equipment, and supplies. However, despite such a dynamic environment, storage space tends to be quite static.

When current storage solutions can’t meet the demands, finding supplies quickly can be difficult. Additionally, it can be challenging to integrate new supplies into an already overflowing space.

Metro’s new EZ-ADD medical storage solutions make optimizing existing storage space easier than ever.

The Problem: Inefficient Use of Space

One of the biggest problems with medical storage rooms is inefficient use of space.

At first glance, medical supplies and equipment may seem organized, but there may be missed opportunities to improve medical supply storage space.

Here are some common examples of inefficient use of space often encountered in healthcare facilities:

  • Overcrowded shelves: Too many supplies in a small space can make it difficult to find what is needed and even more difficult to keep track of inventory, leading to items being overlooked, damaged, and potentially wasted.
  • Poor accessibility: Inaccessible storage can lead to inefficient use of space, time, and improper rotation of products.
  • Plastic bins incorrectly sized to shelves: If storage bins are incorrectly sized to shelves, they can leave large gaps of space that could be better used.
  • Lack of flexibility for changing needs: Healthcare facilities frequently update equipment and supplies. Inflexible storage solutions can quickly become outdated and inefficient.

While increasing the available storage space for supplies is always the first choice, it may not be the most practical or economical solution. That’s where EZ-ADD comes in. With EZ-ADD, medical storage shelves can be repositioned and more shelving added without tools or dismantling existing shelving units.

Traditionally, adding shelves to shelving units is a hassle, requiring the temporary relocation of inventory and dismantling of shelving. With EZ-ADD, space can be maximized without the hassle.

EZ-ADD’s innovative design uses split clips to support an EZ-ADD shelf. These clips can be attached to the post in between two existing shelves. With this simple process, EZ-ADD shelves can be inserted into existing shelving units without disassembling the unit. Unused space between shelves throughout your existing shelving systems can be reclaimed.

The EZ-ADD medical supply storage system will work with standard 1” metro posts and is compatible with any Super Erecta, Super Adjustable Super Erecta, or Super Erecta Pro shelving. Each EZ-ADD shelf holds up to 400 lbs.

Recovering unused space within healthcare storage areas is invaluable. Add one or two EZ-ADD shelves and clips with the purchase of new Metro shelving to future-proof storage requirements.


Benefits of EZ-ADD for Healthcare Storage Systems

Whether inventory needs have changed, or organization needs to be improved, Metro’s EZ-ADD medical storage system can help maximize limited space.

It can be challenging to integrate new stock into existing inventory. Chances are high that the current medical storage setup was designed years ago for different storage needs.

To maintain organization and efficiency within a facility, it is important to have adaptable healthcare storage systems in place for scalability. With EZ-ADD additional shelf space can be reclaimed or adjusted with little effort and shelves angled for better product visibility and access.
